Judgement Tower

Judgement Tower

The defence tower from 14th century.
Around the year 1540 it was built in a fortress shape, the present image is from the year 1830. It got its name from the time when sentences were pronounced in it.

It is also linked to the trials of witch's processes, as it was here that sentences were pronounced on women who were perceived as being witches. Due to its shape the Judgement Tower is also known as the Round Tower and due to the nearness of the Minorite monastery also as the Monastic Tower.

You will find it in the lower part of Maribor's market place in Lent.
